The Black Pyramid of pharaoh Amenemhat III who ruled from 1855 to 1808 BC. This pyramid is only one of three remaining of the original eleven that were constructed at Dashur. The Black Pyramid has collapsed on the exterior due to the elevation being close to sea level. The interior passages ways and rooms are still intact.
The Red Pyramid located at Sakkara was the second pyramid to be built and is the third tallest every built, the only two taller are at Giza.
Then you meet the buggies and start self driving in the desert around the pyramids. What an exciting way to view the ancient wonders. These custom buggies are capable of whisking over the dunes at speeds over 50 mph.
